    The enneagram has 9 types, three subtypes, and types range from unhealthy to healthy. Each type is just as good as the others, the main point is moving toward health.

    The system seems complex at first, but it's really simple, and once you nderstnad how your personality reacts to things (other personalities, usually), then it's much easier to see the situation more clearly and move toward healthy behaviors.

    But, one has to be pretty nerdy to get into it.
    Yes, I understand that no one type is better than any of the others, and I was mostly joking. I did try as a female to answer what I really felt rather than what a conditioned response might be and the result was 8w7. I do get along with most people and have healthy relationships so it appears that I am able to control the worst characteristics. Like any test though I think it's interesting, but not definitive, there are just too many variables.
